A crowd of children stands and marvels at the juggling prowess of a young boy as he keeps three hoops in the air. This adds an additional dimension to traditional Two of Pentacles cards, with the notion of having an audience. What kind of additional pressure is placed on us when not only do we have to multi-task, but we are observed while doing so? The boy has chosen this and seems to be enjoying it, but we cannot know what pressures are in the background, behind that blue curtain. Blue being often associated with emotion, the question may arise of whether the pressure to perform is one of our own making.
I am grateful to be able to multi-task.
I am thankful not to have an audience for everything I do.
